Other sites may cover just one facet, or write one post every 3 weeks, but DZone's new NoSQL Zone has its hand on the pulse of numerous NoSQL communities and projects.
How did NoSQL go from just an upstart movement in early 2009 to being a widely viable persistence option?
Most of the great technology behind today's open source NoSQL databases started as internal projects at the biggest tech companies in the world:
Amazon started with SimpleDB (formerly Dynamo), Google had BigTable, Facebook created Cassandra, and LinkedIn built Project Voldemort. Today the other major tech vendors are catching up with their own commercial offerings. IBM's DB2 is adding NoSQL features, and Oracle, who has been downplaying NoSQL databases for a while, is now finally releasing a NoSQL database of their own.
While RDBMS continue to be a strong persistence option, it's becoming more apparent that NoSQL is here to stay as a favorable alternative in many cases.
